Its unrealistic to expect a squeaky clean house with 4 kids. We have one of the most expensive vacuums out there. Because my husband wants a good vacuum. But tbh, #walistambo is still the best. Even up to the smallest speck of dust, you got it. You dont walk barefoot and step on crumbs etc. a Pet peeve of my husband and I. We hate walking on crumby floor. If thats even a word. I sound like Im so clean, but i gotta be honest, I was once a slob as a kid/almost adult. Hahaha. No lies though, Walis tambo is still the best. Hahaha. If youre wondering, this is a broom from the #onlyinthephilippines i got in a bazaar here in japan 2 years ago. 😊😊😊.
Trimmed the bushes, cleaned the windows and mowed the front and backyard yesterday, and yes, I was outdoors for 6 hrs. using my #walistingting and #walistambo and #dustpan (blowers are annoyingly loud) to keep things nice and clean. I made friends with a couple of friendly neighbors who dropped by to say hi to tease me saying, “you make the rest of the women around here look bad”! Lol.
#walistambo traditional Filipino broom made of reed. I took this picture last time I was in my parents’ kitchen. 💓🇵🇭 My parents will never switch brooms. From Pasay City to the middle of Connecticut, mom and dad carried Manila with every thing they did. As simple as sweeping the floor - even the way we cleaned was filled with cultural significance and memories of our native home. #raisedpinay
Checking out the grand opening of Seafood City by our place. No more long lines, and of course we finally got new (tabos), walis, and also a new steamer😁my silly kids got Maddie her own tabo for when we give her a bath🐶
Spring cleaning is so much better with the walis tambo! This kind of walis (broom) from the Philippines 🇵🇭 is made from tambo (tiger grass) with a wooden handle. It’s usually used for cleaning interior flooring of a house and it glides gently across the smooth floor. While it does shed a little each use, it’s fine cos it’s biodegradable and when most of the tambo fibers are gone, you know it’s time to get a new one. 😁 Like if you think walis tambo is cooler and faster than Harry Potter’s Firebolt!

RoxyGrant likes to chew on pieces of wood that we use on our woodstove to keep them warm and fuzzy at night. We have their beds set up next to the warm stove. They leave pieces of wood all around the area... the swifter does not pickup as good as this magic tambo... see that stuff next to the broom? That is my morning present from them... haaaay! ... as long as they are quiet and occupied... and that is life tucked in the woods! #almostaliaga
